Rain is on the agenda, for several days – dampening the spirits of those wishing for spring. I for one will be happy when warm weather takes control of the area and lifts the spirits of those down and out from a long winter. How are your brackets doing? Are you enjoying the Stanley Cup Playoffs? Who are you rooting for?
Buffalo Sabres Links
The Buffalo Sabres could still get a first round pick for Ryan Miller from the St. Louis Blues – the Blues would have to sign Ryan Miller before the draft. It is likely however, that Ryan Miller will get to July 1 and become a free agent. California here he comes! Lets go there and try and win one….. More importantly – with July 1 looming for Steve Ott, does he come back to Buffalo – a team that would likely overpay him just to get him back. [Hockey Buzz].
Ryan Miller’s playoff flop may have cost him dearly, but then again, July 1 is when team owners and general managers put their stupid hats on. [WGR550].
If you asked me when the trade was made – I would have told you that the Buffalo Sabres came out ahead. Now that the flop is complete, the Sabres definitely came out number one. [Sabres 101].
We get a game seven! There is nothing like a game seven, even if it won’t start until late. Kings force Sharks into 7th game. And to be fair, Colorado and Minnesota get a game seven also. [CBS Sports].
Have we learned anything from the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs? [Christian Science Monitor].
Games of Thrones vs NHL. The National Hockey League teams all get a GOT style banner. There are some good ones, some iffy ones, and I don’t mind the Buffalo Sabres one at all. [USA Today].
What is next for Ryan Miller? [Too Many Men].
Is Zdeno Chara considering calling it a career? [Causeway Crowd].
Should Justin Bailey be getting first line minutes from the New York Islanders? [Eyes on Isles].
